Give a star kid all the newcomer awards for a performance no one even saw: Amaal Mallik

Bollywoods one of the most widely appreciated singers Amaan Mallik, recently expressed his displeasure over the ?biased nominations of talents in the film industry post the 62nd Jio Filmfare Awards 2017. Taking a jibe at Anil Kapoors son Harshwardhan for his debut film Mirzya and Aishwarya Rais nomination for Sarabjit, Amaal requested the jury members to reward artists on the basis of their body of work and not their backgrounds.

Amaal Mallik, a young music composer and singer, who himself was nominated in Baaghi and Kapoor & Sons in the most prestigious award ceremonies of India, used Facebook to voice his strong opinion on award functions. Amaal, through his post, lashed out on award ceremonies questioning jurys credibility to give awards.

This is what Amaals Facebook post said –

I have not spoken about this, but I need to address the issue !!!!! 

A big thank you to the award functions that nominated me and a bigger thank you to the ones that didn’t…. 

I am nominated for my Albums #KapoorandSons and #Baaghi at the award shows which is an honour because Kapoor and Sons was a beautiful collaborative effort by Me #Badshah, Tanishk Bagchi and Arko Pravo and the result is for all to see! 

But if you nominate a #Baaghi that has had average music, only a #SabTera #ChamCham and till a point it was #AgarTuHota that did decent, it’s unbelievable because a #BaarBaarDekho and #MSDhoni are bigger albums with 4 successful songs in each.

It is so funny and surprising that you go out of your way and give a star kid all the new comer awards for the best debut, for a performance no one even saw…..

Whereas a #DiljitDosanjh who deserved that award for #UdtaPunjab is nowhere !!

#Sarbjit had #RandeepHooda almost kill himself to bones, and play that character, and you nominate only #AishwaryaRaiBachchan hahahahaha ! 

Why forget albums like #Kahaani #Neerja by a new composer, #BaarBaarDekho #MSDhoni #Airlift #Jugni and what about a super albums like #Fitoor and #Banjo…. 

#MSDhoni makes it to the Oscars and it doesn’t even get considered as a best film by the award functions…..

#NeerajPandey not nominated for #MSD, #RajaMenon not nominated for #Airlift, and no #AkshayKumar for Best Actor seriously?

Why don’t these honest to script yet commercially successful films and albums make it to the nominations list….. 

A nomination is an acknowledgment of Good Work, well that’s what I know, but we are disregarding the contribution people have made to the year with their good music and good films, and great performances. 

What happened to Aligarh & Airlift as films, #ManojBajpayee was incredible and so was #AkshayKumar. 

When I won for Roy last year at almost every award function I was disappointed the most, that an album like #Badlapur was not even considered, it was an album on par with Roy, if not better.

That year even #BajrangiBhaijaan was a great album, but Dilwale and Tamasha were considered better whereas there was so much musical Range #PritamDa showed in #BB

Coming to folk Hindustani music, why not nominate #PremRatan then,it was beautiful folkish melody, which works with rural india just like a #Mirziya…..

By not nominating some ones’ work is a mark of disrespect to that Individual.

First things first to clear out – #AeDilHainMushkil is by far the best music album by Pritam Da and Arijit is the best singer and Amitabh Bhattacharya is the best lyricist…..And I root for that album as it is the greatest album of the last 5 years.

But and a very big BUT !!!!!!

Why do you have a jury that is still working in the film industry, you need a non-biased jury, not people who are still part of the industry, who end up nominating themselves lol for their own music, their own productions and directorials…..

I am ashamed to be nominated for #Baaghi, and I know my director and producers might hate me for making this remark, but it was a very pathetically average album….I’m not crying about my self here, I should be happy I have 2 nominations almost everywhere this year but yes it’s funny !

Please do a survey and you will know only #ADHM #Dangal & #Sultan #KapoorAndSons #BaarBaarDekho #Airlift & #SanamRe till a point are the albums that the public has loved….

Please be fair and nominate a #Dangal that was honest to script too and yet is a rage today and is topping charts….

Out of respect for seniors you can’t just keep nominating them for stuff that hasn’t Even been appreciated or even heard by 90% of India….

That’s the funniest thing I’ve seen in long

Winning or Lose doesn’t matter the point is, After tremendous hit singles like #JabTak #KaunTujhe #Besabriyaan #SabTera #BolDoNaZara , the award jury decided not to nominate Armaan Malik for his work.

Now coming to the final crux, this is me as a 3rd person who is seeing things happen, and I’m not speaking as a brother here.

The problem lies in the way people operate here, we all ball talk about welcoming youngsters with open arms and supporting them, well I think the rise of #ArmaanMalik as a voice has barely begun, and even if you try to duck youngsters like him, they will keep bouncing back and hitting charts…..

Not nominating Manoj Muntashir for his work in #MSD & Kumaar for #Airlift and Rashmi Virag for #BolDoNaZara is as unbelievable as it can get, Amitabh Bhattacharya will win and he deserves it too, but if you don’t nominate good work you aren’t even inspiring the deserving hard working people to deliver better….

Nominating music and albums that no one has ever heard, that’s crazy as hell boss !!!!

A last request, please don’t nominate music that only your jury members sit at home and applaud over starters and drinks.

Really ?!??

Award Gaya bhaad mein yaar, but atleast nominate people as per their talent and their body of work every year….

By not doing so you are making a joke of our film industry and the public backslash is huge, every accolade seems so so unreal and planned, new awards to keep people happy are coming up….

If after this post even if I don’t get nominations ever in my life, it is okay, I’ve always voiced my opinion, and I stand by it!

Good Day.

Stars like Aamir Khan and Kangana Ranaut too have preferred maintaining a distance from such award ceremonies, as they think such nominations shame talent. One of the most esteemed award functions, Filmfare Awards, has received a lot of criticism this year.

Amaan Mallik, who’s the nephew of music composer Anu Malik, rose to fame with songs in movies like Roy, Kapoor & Sons, Baaghi, etc. With this post, it seems as if award functions are just meant to create mockery out of talent. Is it really true that the deserving isn’t rewarded and encouraging new talent in the cinema is never a matter of business

BJP spokesperson for Maharashtra Rajeev Panday, while speaking to Nation Next, said the controversial movie ‘The Kashmir Files,’ which grossed over ₹240 crore in India, should be made tax-free in the state. 

 

Panday told Nation Next, “The movie has managed to depict, if not all, the brutalities on Kashmiri Pandits. It is a bold representation of truth. Kashmiri Pandit community was forced to leave their own homes in the country. Imagine their plight! Maharashtra government should make it tax-free in their state like the BJP did.”

 

The movie, which is based on the exodus of Kashmiri Pandits from the Valley in the 1990s, has been made tax-free in at least BJP-run eight states namely Haryana, Gujarat, Madhya Pradesh, Uttarakhand, Karnataka, Goa, Tripura and Uttar Pradesh. Maharashtra Chief Minister Uddhav Thackeray had also received requests asking him to exempt the film from entertainment tax in the state.

A lawyer and an actor, Rajeev Panday was appointed as the spokesperson for BJP in Maharashtra in 2017. Besides practicing in The Supreme Court of India and Bombay High Court for around 15 years, Panday has also been a name to reckon with in the entertainment industry.

Panday, who’s acted in Bollywood grocers like Amitabh Bachchan’s starrer Pink and John Abraham’s starrer Madras Cafe, has given many terrific performances on stage.

His recent performances at Ibsen Festival at Prithvi Theatre were appreciated well by the audience and critics alike.
 

 

A law graduate from Delhi University’s Campus Law Centre, Panday has also been actively involved in legal activism. Through his Public Interest Litigations, Panday has raised many pertinent issues like regulation of television content and charitable hospitals not providing free treatment to the poor people.

 

In his longstanding association with the BJP, Panday has served the party as the convenor of its Mumbai Human Rights cell and the convenor of the Election Cell of its Maharashtra unit.
